BRICS

Prime minister Modi’s impressive speech and his successful attempt to openly criticize, condemn and include the Pakistan sponsored terror organisations in the declaration of the BRICS SUMMIT is highly laudable which has sent across an extremely healthy signal about India’s commitment to fight terrorism tooth and nail along with Brazil, China, South Africa and other invitees at the meet at Xiamen, CHINA.

Today, the entire world community is the victim of radical terrorism aided and abetted by Pakistan and China being soft on them earlier. Prime Minister Modi’s eloquent address to declare Al Qaida, Haqqani network, Lashkare Tayyeba, Hizbul Mujaheddin, Jamaat Ul Dawa etc as international terrorist organisations nurtured by Pakistan creating havoc in India, Afghanistan, USA and other countries of the globe has not only badly demoralized and again exposed Pak in the international sphere but has also been successful in making China fall in line who was earlier reluctant to openly accept the former’s role of aiding and abetting various terror organisations creating disturbances in the Asian Subcontinent. It may be recalled that prior to the visit of Prime Minister Modi to Xiamen, China, the Chinese foreign ministry’s spokesperson had issued an advance notice that Pakistan sponsored terror would not be an appropriate topic for the BRICS summit to discuss.

Apart from this, the Pakistan National Assembly had also passed a resolution declaring America’s role and participation in Afghanistan’s developmental initiatives as detrimental to regional peace and stability. Sounds shocking and ridiculous. Just a few days ago United State’s president had reprimanded Pakistan for encouraging dreaded terror groups on its land and making Pak a safe haven to constantly nurture them creating blood bath in India, Afghanistan, US and other countries of the globe. US Congress has also stopped the 255  million US dollar  worth of financial aid to Pakistan for the time being and put the money in the escrow account till it mends it ways and gives up protecting these terror groups, a big headache to the world community. Prime minister’s impressive speech appealing to the BRICS NATIONS to unitedly fight Pak sponsored terrorism and inclusion of the above mentioned dreaded terror outfits in the BRICS DECLARATION to be  officially declared as international terror groups is a big achievement for India in the international scenario, a second achievement after the peaceful settlement of the 70 days old Doklam stand off The BRICS declaration unambiguously exhibits the changing attitude of the Dragon as this is for the first time that Pakistan’s closest ally China has agreed to counter these terror groups being openly blessed and supported by Pakistan, the issue on which it was mum and silent earlier. The declaration takes the collective pledge to counter and fight these groups and terrorism unitedly and to hold the countries supporting them directly responsible.

Expansionist China will never improve and its usual habit of bullying its neighbors will never go.

The previous records and behavior of China with India have been of total betrayal and deceits. Whether it’s the Dragon’s misadventures on India’s border territories or its illegal and arbitrary intervention in the South China Sea, it has not even spared the United States of America and is even forcibly trespassing in the sea waters of Vietnam, Seychelles and several other countries of the subcontinent with an eye to expand its trade manifold.

The US has strongly reacted to the China’s misadventures in the South China sea and has warned it of dire consequences in case the later does not mend its ways. Now take the recent instance of the resolution of the seventy days old standoff between India and China which has been welcomed by India in all earnestness but the Chinese officials and politicians at the helm are still not controlling their tone and tenor and are behaving in an irresponsible fashion. This is really absurd and against the international diplomatic standards.

As per the news dispatches from the Chinese capital Beijing the Chinese foreign minister instead of welcoming the gesture of the amicable settlement of the Doklam issue is hell bent upon issuing statement of warning to India saying that India should learn lessons from the recent standoff of Doklam and should in future never ever try to intervene or intrude into the land of any country claiming Doklam to be in the legal occupation of China whereas the fact remains that it is the Bhutanese territory and Thimpu has already signed a treaty with it {China} for maintaining a status quo and non interference or carrying out any activity in the Doklam plateau. But expansionist  China would never relent. It still patrols this area and claims it to be in China’s vicinity. The Chinese foreign minister issued this statement while addressing the media giving briefings on the upcoming summit of BRICS NATIONS being held in China.

This three-day summit will be chaired by the Chinese president Xi Jingping and addressed by all the heads of the BRICS nations. Sounds shocking and surprising that instead of expressing satisfaction and happiness over the amicable settlement of the 70-day old Doklam standoff between India and China the China foreign minister prefers to issue warning or lessons to prevent such misadventures whereas it was the dragon that committed the blunder of trespassing the Bhutanese territory and building road in the Doklam plateau, not India. Say the news analysts: the stand of China on Doklam against India is vitriolic and highly scathing.

The visit of prime minister Narendra Modi to China in the first week of September to participate in the BRICS SUMMIT would definitely be a successful endeavor as the complex stand off between both the countries on the Doklam issue stands resolved to the satisfaction of both the countries.  
 
The prime minister will be in China on 5th and 6th September and would visit Myanmar on 7th. The heads of India, China, Russia, South Africa and Brazil are participating in this significant meet on security matters and other issues of mutual significance.
 
Being the largest democracy of the world and a super power in the making India holds an important position in this venture. Though China too is a very significant country being a highly progressive nation in terms of trade, technology and man power. Relations of India had been at loggerheads with China since 1962 war on border differences and there have been umpteen instances of China breaching the bilateral border agreements putting the Indo-China relations in further quandary.
 
The dragon has not only back stabbed  India in 1962 defying the established principle of peaceful co- existence and the popular slogan of HINDI-CHEENEE BHAI BHAI but has also intruded into Indian territories at Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Ladakh, Barahoti, Uttarakhand and border of Bhutan recently at the China, Sikkim and Bhutan Tri Junction thus posing a direct threat to our Siliguri corridor of the North Eastern States. There had been a number of bilateral visits of Prime Minister Modi and Chinese president Xi Jingping in India and China, respectively but to no avail. The national security advisors of both the countries too visited each other and held a number of bilateral talks but nothing fruitful happened except the latest settlement of the military and diplomatic stand off of two and a half-month-old  Doglang/Dokalam issue. Now the visit of prime minister MODI  to China on the sidelines of BRICS SUMMIT is being viewed as an extremely significant one that would perhaps open doors for more viable results in terms of the settling of border disputes and promote trade relations to new levels.
 
It may be recalled that China had been opposing India’s attempts to seek membership of  NSG and SC of UN since long and massively aiding and abetting Pakistan our arch rival, politically and militarily and has also invested 40 billion dollars in POK in it’s over ambitious China Pakistan Economic Corridor project. It has made its military base in POK to be used against India in the eventuality of war either with Pak or China. Let’s hope for the best that Prime minister Narendra Modi’s China visit helps in cementing good and trusted relations with the dragon and a new chapter in Indo-Sino relations takes shape in the near future. After China prime minister Modi will also visit Myanmar and meet its head of the state including noble laureate Aung Sung Kyi and sign bilateral trade agreements. Myanmar is an important neighbor of India and acknowledges tremendous amount of economic and trade help from INDIA.
 
CHINA is trying hard to influence Myanmar but the latter trusts India than to fall into the deceitful trap of the former.
